ADD-ADHD Explained - How ADD is Evaluated and Diagnosed

ADD-ADHD Explained - How ADD is Evaluated and Diagnosed

There seems to be a misconception on ADD-ADHD. Attention deficit disorder or ADD may sometimes be understood as distinct and separate from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. The fact of the matter is: ADD is a type of ADHD.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder has 3 known types. These are: Inattentive Type, Hyperactive/Impulsive Type, and the Combination Type. The Inattentive type is also known as ADD-ADHD or simply: attention deficit disorder.

Attention deficit disorder is known as the inattentive type of ADHD because this behavioral disorder is characterized by chronic inattention and extreme distractibility. Children with ADD-ADHD are exceedingly inattentive; they have very short attention span and are easily distracted by the minutest of things. They are also observed to be somewhat dreamy because their thoughts tend to wander off while they are in the middle of something. As such, these children tend to be very forgetful and have trouble finishing a task.

Poor performance in school does not bode well for children who are in a stage when formation of self-image begins. Their learning disabilities brought about by the behavioral condition of attention deficit disorder gives them inferiority complexes. These children will have trouble understanding why they cannot keep up with their classmates and peers. As such, frustration and depression is mostly likely.

If your child is exhibiting symptoms of attention deficit disorder in his pattern of behavior, you must consult a medical professional specializing in behavioral disorder for diagnosis. Moreover, it is also helpful for you and your child to consult a behavior therapist so that you can both learn skills and techniques on how to best deal with this behavioral disorder. This will help your child learn coping mechanisms crucial for his well-being.

Do not immediately resort to prescription medication when your child is diagnosed with ADD-ADHD. Drugs may suppress the symptoms of ADHD but they do not cure the disorder. Moreover, these drugs have known side effects that are injurious to your child's health. What you can do instead is to try natural remedies such as homeopathic treatment that are proven effective and safe for your child's use.

Homeopathy helps your child attain better concentration and mood stability. Moreover, this treatment do not have proven side effects and therefore safe for regular use.

Now, are you or your child suffering from the effects of a hyperactivity disorder? Maybe modern medicine has failed you. If so, consider homeopathy for ADHD. Nothing is more than our health. Come visit to learn how you can manage ADHD without the use of drugs.
